Wonder Woman 3 Accelerated After Wonder Woman 1984 Success
Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy
Warner Bros. has fast-tracked Wonder Woman’s third instalment after the apparent success of Wonder Woman 1984. In the third instalment, Gal Gadot will reprise the role of Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Patty Jenkins will also be on board to write and direct the film.
In a statement shared this Saturday, Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Chairman said: “As fans around the world continue to embrace Diana Prince, driving the strong opening weekend performance of Wonder Woman 1984, we are excited to be able to continue her story with our real-life Wonder Women – Gal and Patty – who will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy.”
As per Warner Bros., the opening weekend of Wonder Woman 1984 was better than expected. There was a sale of USD 16.7 (About AUD 21.92) million in tickets across 2,100 theatres in North America. This was surprising as many coronavirus pandemic restrictions are still in place in several cities.
Andy Forssell of Direct-to-Consumer division of Warner Media said: “Wonder Woman 1984 broke records and exceeded our expectations across all of our key viewing and subscriber metrics in its first 24 hours on the service, and the interest and momentum we’re seeing indicates this will likely continue well beyond the weekend.”
One of the reasons for the rising popularity of Wonder Woman 1984 was that its release was postponed multiple times due to the pandemic. The reviews for the film have been mixed. Critics have pointed out that the way the film treats the Middle Eastern characters is not good. Also, there are many general plotting concerns.

Wonder Woman 1984 is streaming on HBO Max but not on Binge. Warner Bros. representatives have confirmed that Aussies will not get a local streaming option. The film was also released in many local cinemas on December 26, and some cinemas even offered early screenings on Christmas day. You can watch it if it is considered safe to do so in your state or territory as coronavirus concerns are growing in many parts of the country and avoiding public places is the best option in such a scenario.
